  2. I absolutely love Z bars! When I am craving a candy bar, I reach for the chocolate brownie flavored z bar and it does the trick. Try putting them in the microwave for 10 seconds and it actually tastes like a warm brownie!

  3. Hmm…i’ll have to try those Pure Bars!

  4. Larabars are great! You can read the label and actually understand what all the ingredients are.

  5. I want to send you some RelaxZen DAY and RelaxZen NIGHT. We are sold in every Duane Reade in NYC! Have you seen them?
